Dogfish Head SeaQuench Session Sour
SeaQuench Ale is our session sour quencher made with lime peel, black lime and sea salt. It’s a citrusy-tart union of three German styles of beer blissfully brewed into one. We begin by brewing a straightforward Kolsch with lots of wheat and Munich Malt, then we brew a salty Gose with black limes, coriander and our sea salt.
We follow it all up with a citrusy-tart Berliner Weisse made with lime juice and lime peel. All three beers are then blended together in the fermentation tank to create this German hybrid. The release of SeaQuench Ale kicks off a new partnership between Dogfish Head and National Aquarium of Baltimore that will focus on inspiring conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures.

Rodenbach Flemish Red Ale
Latis Imports is proud to be the exclusive importer of Rodenbach Classic,
Belgium’s famous sour ale. A great family, a great beer, Rodenbach is rooted in a family tradition starting in 1714.
Rodenbach’s subtle sour undertones make it a real thirst-quencher. Jackson calls Rodenbach “the most refreshing beer in the world.”
Rodenbach Classic’s characteristic taste is achieved through its unique mixed-fermentation process: Top yeasts and bacterial flora undergo 24 months of maturation in 150-year-old oak casks, resulting in the distinctively gentle sour taste for which it is known and loved.
